Tuesday, July 26 at 8 PM

Nath Ann Carrera

Lighting design by David J. Palmer

Ticket price: $15

From a voice that has second-hand smoked since the womb and a mind that was born on the day of the hard look, enjoy an evening of new original and cover songs and insightful and sensationalistic storytelling by Nath Ann Carrera in an immersive arc of cultish lesbian-separatist murder ballads, gender-variant Priestesses of antiquity, consensual a-morality, the blending and dissolution of all dualities, and far BEYOND!

Described as a "heavenly" (New York Times), "gender-defiant" (Time Out New York), "glitter saint" (Village Voice), Nath Ann Carrera has had solo shows at La MaMa ("Death To The Patriarchal Rape Heads"), Joe's Pub, Wild Project, and the Afterglow Festival ("I Don't Want To Throw Rice, I Want To Throw Rocks: The Early Southern Gothicism Of Dolly Parton!"), sings as WITCH CAMP with Amber Martin, performs with Justin VivIan Bond, opened for Martha Wainwright at City Winery, and has sung at P.S. 122, The Kitchen, Abrons Arts Center, Le Poisson Rouge, and MoMA PS1.

Cherry Picking is an annual opportunity for writers, both established and burgeoning, to create new material for performance in one night of staged reading. Each year, a group of producers gathers and develops the theme for Cherry Picking. This annual meeting allows the creative team to examine issues that are somehow charged. This may be a hot topic politically, a fascinating sociological phenomenon, a nagging question, a captivating image, and so on.

A "Call for Submissions" is distributed and writers are invited to tackle the challenge of writing a short play based on the given theme or assignment. This year's theme is "Sweet Sixteen."

Inspired by Quotations from the Writings of Oscar Wilde

With book, music and lyrics by Richard Isen, direction by Jonathan Cerullo, and musical direction by Denise Puricelli

Produced by Anne Nygren Doherty and the New Musical Theatre of San Francisco

Fifty-five year-old Gregory has spent his adult life denying the loss he experienced as a young man during the AIDS crisis. After a near-death experience, The Lady appears. Is she an inner guide from the Jungian collective unconscious? Or a musical hallucination resulting from a small stroke? Gregory is pushed out of his solitary reality by his unlikely muse, and down the rabbit hole of mid-life crisis where he enters into a turbulent, dangerous relationship with a young male escort named "Chance." A unique theatrical cocktail that is one part fun, one part heart, and total magic.

ALL THE USUAL WAYS TO BRUISE AN ALL TOO FRAGILE EGO by Mila Golubov

Sally was once with Cindy who was once with Maria who may seduce Mark after Sally's had her way with him in exchange for cold hard cash.

WHERE'S HOPE? WHERE'S HOPE? OH, GOD, WHERE'S HOPE? by Frederick Kirwin, directed by Paul Navarra

Over the course of 30 years our perceptions of the past change. A love triangle, a midnight storytelling, a drowning, and a murder/suicide may not be what they seem. Set in Florida of the 1960s, Frederik Kirwin's poetic play is a sometimes comic discourse on revenge, pride, ambition, jealousy, wanderlust, sibling rivalry, sexual innocence, reversal of fortunes, and a baseball game.

Friday July 22, 7 pm; Saturday July 23, 6:30 pm; Sunday July 24, 3:30 pm

THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW by Doug DeVita

A fast-moving caustic comedy, Kyle, an art director in high-powered New York ad agency, tries to discover his real self amid power struggles and stereotypes. He finds an ally in Dodo, who understands his plight - being that she became a lady-living-legend in an era of "Mad Men."

All performances are at the wild project (195 E. 3rd Street, between Avenues A & B).

Tickets can be purchased from OvationTix on 212.352.3101 or online at http://www.thewildproject.com.
